Catalog as of January 02, 2016

Viburnum

(Caprifoliaceae - honeysuckle family)
About 225 species of shrubs or sometimes small trees. Native to N and S America, Europe, and Asia. They are very popular as garden subjects; many of the species are cultivated as ornamentals. A few species produce edible fruit, and a number of species have value as food sources for birds and other wildlife. Those listed here are tolerant of wet soil and partial shade, and are useful as specimens or for informal hedge or screen plantings. The fruit of all of the species listed here is eaten by birds. For fruit production, it is best to set out two or more plants of a species. All of the species listed are quite shade tolerant, but where fruit production is desired they should have plenty of sun.
